    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A loud, coarse and witless family comedy.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    In execution, this clever idea is far less funny than the original, "Killers From Space," which was directed by W. Lee Wilder, the vastly less talented brother of the great Billy.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The script, attributed to Mark Schwahn, Marc Hyman and Jon Zack, is as confused as it is confusing, and the aimless direction by Brian Robbins doesn't help. It was apparently edited with a roulette wheel.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A strained, ultra-predictable and headache-inducing mockumentary.
    • 29 Metascore

    It’s often hard to figure out who’s winning, much less care about it. One thing is certain: Nobody is going to be demanding a rematch.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A long, tedious and often unintentionally hilarious adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi follow-up.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    One of the year's worst movies.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's sad to see Quaid in sloppily directed (by Martin Guigui) dreck like Beneath the Darkness less than a decade after the performance of his career as a closeted married man in "Far From Heaven.''
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Barely watchable, despite the presence of such pros as Michael McKean and Jane Lynch.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A boring and violent French crime thriller, is the sort of routine potboiler that generally goes straight to video in this country, if it's seen at all.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Another mean-spirited black comedy from Todd Solondz, tries even harder than the director's two earlier films to shock and outrage -- but the overall effect of his sophomoric excess is tiresome and dull, like watching someone else's 2-year-old act out for the 50th time.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Antonio Banderas is unintentionally hilarious as Father Matt Gutierrez, a sort of Jesuit James Bond.
    • New York Post
    • 16 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The only pro involved in this amateurish labor of love is veteran character actor Arthur Nascarella, cast as Jack's florist father.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Dull and creaky soap opera.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Desperately unfunny.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A jaw-droppingly terrible animated musical that mismatches George Lucas’ inane story about a pair of fairy princesses to an oddball selection of the “Star Wars’’ creator’s favorite pop tunes.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Would the Mayans have predicted the end of the world in 2012 if they'd known it would inspire not only "The Tree of Life'' and "Melancholia'' but an endless supply of more dreary depictions of end-times like this one?
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A dull, by-the-numbers psych-ward horror thriller that's sadly a lot closer in quality to "Sucker Punch" than "Shutter Island."
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Might have made a tolerable five-minute "mockumentary," but it's apparently meant seriously.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The sloppily shot, crudely edited Head of State fails as satire, for starters, because of its utter disconnect from any kind of reality.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Unintended laughs far, far outnumber intended thrills.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Seems to go on for several days and nights, though in fact it lasts just 105 minutes. I checked my watch. A lot.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Directed without wit or energy.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Featuring eyeball-rolling performances by Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, Clifton Davis and the singularly named Leon, Cover would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Scary Movie 4 concludes by satirizing Cruise's couch-jumping orgy on "Oprah." Funny, but nowhere near as hilarious as the real thing.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A great-looking but stupefyingly incoherent supernatural thriller adapted from a popular video game that ransacks the entire catalog of horror film tropes for more than two mind-numbing hours.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The Caller qualifies as something of a Holocaust movie, with flashbacks to World War II France. Guess who the two boys we see grow up to be?
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Lumpy, preachy and soporific.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's not a bad premise for a movie, but writer-director Omar Naim, a 26-year-old Lebanese native making his feature debut, proves equally inept at handling plotting, actors and pacing.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Excruciatingly bad.
